Springfield Sharps

I have been watching a Springfield Trials Sharps on a European site for the last year. It is number 26 of the 300 originally produced. Condition is super. The price started at 5,850 Euro ($6,740). Today I received an email from the guy and he is offering it to me at 5,100 Euro ($5,600). I can't just compare the US price to the Euro price because I have to factor in customs (20%), shipping and insurance. That said, what does a really nice example sell for in the US?

If you fire one shot you know where your zero is, if you fire two shots you are uncertain, if you fire three shots you know how difficult it is to know where your zero is...

I bought a very good conversion action one last year for $1600. Amoskeag Auction just sold one of each. The conversion one sold for $2937 and the 1874 one sold for $3172. The conversion was better condition than the 1874. I've  seen them at gun shows listed at nearly $6000 but they weren't selling.

I've purchased many firearms from Holts and never paid any customs.  Both antique and new.  Just the juice for the auction and NO VAT.  Shipping and it is here.  I have had customs view them to ensure product and that was that.

The government wanted Sharps and Remington rifles, but didn't want to pay the price. They bought actions from both makers and had the muskets completed ay Springfield. I have never seen either bring the money yoy are talking about. They are the red headed kid at a family reunion. R. Binger

Huh? I like red headed kids. Got a really nice one you’d want to sale for a round $3,000 or under?
